1390 – 1433 in a year of 2012 wOws!

My “word” for 2012 is wOw!           

wOw! is one of those fabulous words that fits positive, negative and neutral situations.  It’s a word we can use when no other will work.   Over this next year of Sundays, I’m going to share some wOw!moments from the previous week.  By December 31, 2012, I’ll have shared 2012 wOw! moments.   

I hope you’ll have spotted (and maybe even shared) close to that, too.

Here’s what made me say wOw! this week:

  1. That “silver bullets” don’t work for everyone. Which sucks.
    Connecting with a friend who I rarely get to see and knowing that we meet often in prayer.
    Cool weather with no humidity!
    The courage and amazing stability of my daughters.

  2. My ‘wow’ moments this week included: (1) Throwing out a grocery bag full of old panty hose more than a year after retirement. I really do NOT need them! (2) a very healthy looking pic from my daughter in law.
